Brilliant ice cream, for its softness & price.
I was very pleased with this ice cream. I was initially looking for a competitor's ice cream (the one with a fictitious, Danish name!) but they no longer seem to make it? Their ice cream is also very good, but it turns rock solid in the freezer, meaning you have to thaw it out for 20 minutes or so, before you can scoop it. It's also about three times the price of 'Carte D'or'. But 'Carte D'or's' ice cream was a very pleasant surprise & in a couple of ways (one already mentioned), a great improvement. It is a rich, creamy ice cream, with a full bodied 'Rum' flavour & lots of raisins. It is soft & never freezes solid, so you can scoop it easily straight from the freezer. I'll definitely be buying it in future, not the competitors, if they ever start making it again. I'm thankful I couldn't find the competitors, because I wouldn't have found 'Carte D'or's' if I had!
absolutely love the flavour. Love tha raisins in the ice cream, the ice cream was creamy and very flavourful. Highly recommend
Rum and raisin icecream is my all time favourite flavour so trying cart dour one was a must. The flavour is amazing very full and moreish and makes you want more. The down side is that it's far too light and fluffy it's more like a moose than an ice cream. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Not what I expected
This is sold as ice cream but the packaging states it is a dessert. This is probably because it does not freeze but is really soft, like ice cream that has thawed and been refrozen. The raisins have been soaked in rum too which is ok if you are expecting it but can be overpowering.
I have never tried this ice-cream before, I have to say it is one of the best ice-cream I have tasted, the rum & Raisin flavour is really quality, the ice-cream is also easy to scoop and not hard like some ice-cream [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Keep well in the freezer.
Unlike many other ice creams, this has remained soft and still scoopable, even after weeks in the freezer. No signs of over frosting or freezer burn, it's as nice as when first purchased. Flavour was exceptional, even down to the last bowl full. Thick, creamy with that definite hint of rum, yet not too overpowering. A definite for your basket, wether for friends visiting or a quiet night in. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Great taste and texture
We have sampled this product with Children and Grandchildren and all commented on the great taste and texture. Myself, I have been reluctant to try this favourite from my youth, but believe me, this is Retro Ice Cream! Delicious. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
So Yummy x
I love rum & raisin ice cream, and this is just excellent. The ice cream was whiter in colour than I expected, but it was deliciously creamy and very easy to scoop out of the tub. The raisins were plump and tasted of rum, though there weren't that many of them, it was a bit like having a rum shot when you did find one, but overall this ice cream is so moreish its going on my shopping list on a regular basis.

Ok for a quick dessert
Nice enough rum and raisin ice cream for a quick dessert but nothing really special. tasted a bit too artificial and watery not at all a luxury ice cream. Could have done with a few more raisins too. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
The product proved initially difficult to open as the plastic covering did not have enough of a tab to start the opening process. Once opened it had a smell of rum about it. It has a soft creamy texture and there are plenty of raisins in the ice cream. There is also a strong taste of rum. Define toy an ice cream for a special occasion.
